Our predicted Chelsea team for tonight’s group G clash.
Chelsea have yet another huge Premier League hurdle coming up on Saturday, with Liverpool the next obstacle on the Blues’ radar.
While Liverpool are not in the best of form, Jose Mourinho will want his team as fresh as possible, especially after a poor performance against QPR.
In light of this, he is likely to field the weakest team he can comfortably get away with against Slovenian champions Maribor in the Champions League.
Mourinho has never been one for extreme rotation, but there will be significant differences between the team that plays tonight and the one that plays on Saturday.
GK) Petr Cech
Mourinho seems to favour playing Cech in the Champions League now. The question is whether this will continue after the group stage.
